After leaving BP last night I knew that RH wouldn’t be offering any post match coverage as they decided some time ago that it wasn't worth their while staying on air any longer if they didn’t get any fan reaction after 10-00 PM

I realise that they can justify this with audience research figures etc. that would probably back up their decision

I’d have thought last night though they might have made an exception as I’m sure there’d have been plenty of material for them to cover

It is what it is I guess but I kind of expected a passing mention at least on Look North(bank) this morning or at lunchtime but nothing.

It’s almost as if they’ve made a deliberate decision not to mention us getting to the third round.

I can’t help wondering if it was any other local club if they’d have been so silent?

Well it is a two way street. It is very rare that Town fans ring in, and when you have the major shareholder ambushing their sports reporter at a fans forum, they are not going to do us any favours are they?

Truth is it’s not really of significance to the wider region is it so wouldn’t have expected look north to run it.

I have always thought this about RH. They still relegate us to digital over Scunny even though we get larger gates and are well placed.

Is the reason nobody phones in is because we are fed up of the Hull biase and turn off before we can be heard?

Few years ago we had thrashed someone on a Tuesday night. Driving home I was listening to RH.  Instead of praising Town they wanted fans to ring in and discuss why there was less than 4,000 at the game. It was the only negative they could come up with.

Driving home after another Tuesday game, Dull City had played on the Monday.  Us and Scunny had both played so a lot of the audience wanted to listen to our teams. They managed to replay the 15 minute Steve Bruce interview from the night before instead.

If they want Town fans to listen and ring in they should cater for them, stop the constant negativity, and stop ramming north bank sport on us when none of the north bank teams are playing. At the moment, it feels like they can't be bothered with the south bank.

they gave us darn good coverage (broadcast games) during non league days IMO, often more than Scunny and at least equal to Hull, the fact "the club" has fallen out with both Matt Dean and Burnsy in recent years, shunned them and moved to Compost F.M for a while hardly makes the relationship amicable.
Could always drop back in with Compost F.M and remind ourselves what cr@p coverage really is.

To be honest I’ve been on air a couple of times on their shows. They now have a policy of not allowing you to go on live if you’re driving, even on hands free, so as I’m usually going back along the 180 after a match, it rules out me discussing anything in depth, although they will take a message and air that if you get in early enough

I don't see why the number of people ringing in should make a difference to whether they provide coverage. The number of people who phone in isn't a reliable proxy for audience size. More people phoning up could just mean they're angrier, or happier than usual or just loadmouths.

But if there's not the people to ring in, which always seems to be something they're practically begging for post-match, there isn't an awful lot to talk about.  There's only so many times they can replay audio clips of the game.   It can take a while to get the interview with Jolley post-game too so it must be difficult providing up to an hour of filler.

As others have quite rightly pointed out too, how often can we expect the club to fall out with Humberside and they still promote us?  Most clubs recognise their local media outlets as free advertising and ways of engaging with the fanbase.  It feels like we view our outlets as an obligation.
